Issues impacting the transgender community have become a flashpoint in the 2024 election, with far right candidates campaigning and endorsing policies that are against gender-affirming care, the right of transgender folks to participate in sports, comprehensive education that’s inclusive of gender identity and sexuality, access to abortion for trans* and non-binary folks, and much more.
According to the ACLU, 506 anti-LGBTQ bills were introduced in state legislatures in 2023 as of November. At an alarming rate, the House of Representatives is introducing bills harmful and dangerous to the transgender community, such as the Labor, Health, Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill for FY 2024. Section 534 of this bill will prohibit gender-affirming surgical procedures and hormone therapies, which would result in extensive damage if passed.
